A new driving range and major golf course improvements have been unveiled as part of a £2 million investment in the Bicester Hotel, Golf & Spa by Great Wolf Resorts, which is building its first UK indoor water park and family resort on a site that was part of the old golf course.

The renovation of the par-71 course, which was carried out by Swan Golf Designs, features 36 newly designed tees, freshly remodelled bunkers and seven lake systems, combined with nine fully reconstructed green complexes. It also boasts a new 13-bay driving range with fully interactive TopTracer technology and a purpose-built practice area.

The redevelopment of the golf course frees space for the construction of the new Great Wolf Lodge in Chesterton. Ahead of works beginning for this new family-focused destination, Murray Hennessy, Chief Executive Officer at Great Wolf Resorts, handed back the improved course to representatives of Bicester Hotel, Golf & Spa alongside representatives from England Golf.

Hennessy said: “We pride ourselves on being a good neighbour and proud supporter of the communities in which our family-friendly resorts are located, and we’re delighted to start our journey here in Chesterton by delivering a fantastic new golf course for locals and hotel guests to enjoy. This is the first of many local initiatives planned as we work towards the grand opening of our first UK indoor water park resort.”
Paul Morgan, General Manager at Bicester Hotel, Golf & Spa, commented: “We are delighted to open this new driving range and present the major improvements to our members and guests. We would like to thank all of our loyal golf members and the local community for their patience during the past few years, and I have no doubt they will enjoy the challenges of an elegant new style course and practice facilities which include the latest ball tracking technology.”
